This past fall, Chris (the boy) and I took part of a cow-share with several other people from our CrossFit box. We purchased 1/16th of a cow from Wolf Creek Farm. Included were several pounds of ground beef, bones for beef stock, and some massive pieces of meat. Also, a tongue. We had eaten tongue before and were intrigued by its taste and wanted to try it our for ourselves. Ergo, tonight’s dinner. This 2-pound tongue has been sitting in our freezer for several months and we finally got the courage to cook it. Today’s post will include two pictures: before and after.
This thing was huge. And kind of gross-looking. Afterall, it is an animal’s tongue. Note the tastebuds. We cooked it following this recipe. We probably cooked it for a bit too long, but its taste was awesome. We sautéed some asparagus and spinach (with some butter and brie – yum!) and of course, drank a glass of wine.
Overall, a pretty good meal :)
